The Graduate Diploma in Business (which incorporates the Graduate Certificate) is designed for students who wish to enter into postgraduate business study and require grounding in business concepts. It’s also designed for people who have an undergraduate degree outside business and want to develop knowledge and skills for a career in a field of business.

Papers are chosen from those available in the second year and third year of the Bachelor of Business and cover a broad range of business disciplines. This enables students to tailor study to their specific needs.


Students gain an understanding of business concepts in the specific discipline areas that they have chosen to study.  Skills and knowledge gained can be transferred directly to the workplace or used as a basis for postgraduate level study.
